This was such fun to make! I purchased this vintage Nu-Art house number display board quite some time ago from another wonderful etsy seller. It's quite large measuring 12 1/2x14" and each little cubby (there are 12 of them) measure 2 1/2x3 3/4".

The display board itself has a very art deco feel to it and this type of display was meant to sit on a store counter and held various number styles for homeowner's to choose from.
Of course it came to me completely empty and I've long wondered what to do with it until it hit me to make a shadow box display using various numbers in various ways....and being the bisque doll lover that I am I had to include one of them as well.

I first added bits of vintage wallpaper to line the backs of most of the cubbies, then added a vintage watch face, a vintage doll roller skate with the number 5 stamped on it, an old skeleton key with a very small number 1 on it, some beautiful old dominoes, some vintage game pieces, and lastly some vintage Flinch game cards.

This piece would look great leaning on a mantle or table against something. I've not added any hanging hardware to the back of it in case it's new owner doesn't want that on the back.
If you look at the last photo you can see the original label that is still on this wonderful piece.

The outside is hardwood, either mahogany or cherry I believe. Each little cubby is made of very study cardboard and has the most wonderful patina......;).

This would be such a fun and whimsical, not to mention a one-of-a-kind art piece for your home.
